We Know How Much Teens Love Selfies, But There's A Certain Type They Shouldn't Take

Selfies are one thing. Texting naked or semi-naked selfies is another. Even if your son or daughter isn't sending sexually suggestive messages or pictures, there's a pretty good chance they've received one. For a while, everyone was talking about kids and sexting, and then I think we sort of got used to the discussions ... and maybe even became desensitized to sexting. Let's not do that — because sexting has real-life consequences. Make sure your teens know what to do if they receive an inappropriate photo or text. Forwarding it or sharing with friends is not OK. Kids need to be able to safely talk to you about it so you can help stop it.
